“Going Beyond Sustainability” North America Outlook Magazine

Work by Moriyama Teshima Architects has been featured in the 22nd edition of North America Outlook Magazine, in an article entitled “Going Beyond Sustainability”.

This piece highlights our firm’s focus on context-sensitive, environmentally-conscious, sustainably-minded architecture – an overarching theme that has permeated our work for over 65 years. MTA Principal, Phil Silverstein, offers his thoughts on two of our leading mass timber projects which are currently under construction in Toronto, Ontario – Limberlost Place at George Brown College (a JV with Acton Ostry Architects) and the new Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) Headquarters and Multi-Tenant Building. Both of these buildings are composed of nationally sourced timber products which make up their structural systems, and exemplify MTA’s prioritization of carbon reduction through construction and operation. We are actively sharing the leading-edge design information on these projects through active tours of the construction sites, various publications and talks, and media.

“We are strong believers that the research, trials, and tribulations that got us here cannot be siloed. Since 2016 we’ve been educating ourselves on mass timber and regenerative design and putting that into practice with our many state-of-the-art projects.”
Phil Silverstein, Moriyama Teshima Architects
